What size and/or model car to rent in France? Need trunk space.

Jump to last reply

We'll be traveling to Paris and Provence this summer, picking up a rental car for a few days near Avignon. It appears the "what size car?" threads are several years old, so I would appreciate your thoughts on models or size class before I rent one.

We are two adults and two young teenagers. Traveling with one large suitcase (my husband needs suits/shirts/pants for several weeks of meetings, plus casual vacation clothing), three carryon-size suitcases, the kids' backpacks and hubby's briefcase. So my first thought is - we'll need trunk space!

Looking on autoeurope.com, my first thought was "midsize," but the icons indicate trunks only big enough for one large and two small suitcases. We need enough room for one large and three small. Do you think any of these cars could actually hold that many? Cars in this class are, in increasing order of price:

Renault Laguna or similar
Opel Astra Sport Tourer or similar
Renault Scenic or similar
Ford Mondeo or similar
Citroen C4 Picasso or similar
Ford Grand C-Max or similar

If I look instead at "family size" cars, which do indicate enough trunk room, there is only one option that's not double the price of the midsized cars. (For four days of rental car I would prefer not to pay $686 or higher). The less expensive family size car is from Avis - a "Nissan Qashqai or similar" whatever that is. Thoughts?

Also, do I need to add MiFi or GPS for the car? We will have our US AT&T iPhones with the international plan turned on for that month.

Thank you!
